Hi I'm Patricia Ann Hopkins

I'm happy to be a Mormon. It has brought a lot of joy into my life.

About Me

I am a mother of four, grandmother of four and great grandmother of two. Because of my husband's employment, I have lived in many places in the United States. I have worked at waitressing, dog grooming and school bus driving. My favorite pasttimes are crocheting and working on my family history.

Why I am a Mormon

While my husband and I were seeking for a Church for ourselves and our children, a neighbor invited us over to attend a meeting at their home. Guess who just happened to be there? The Mormon Missionaries! The Spirit of the Lord was so strong and their words were so true that we continued to study the Gospel and were baptized a few months later. We loved the Church and continued to be active and worked in many callings as we lived in many different locations. Now, as a widow, I continue my activity in the Church, Keep close to the Lord and try to do good to the people in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a family history consultant in my Ward as well as a visiting teacher. I love to attend Church on Sunday. It gives me a lot of strength for the week ahead. I pray often throughout each day to my Heavenly Father and enjoy reading my scriptures daily, especially the Book of Mormon.
